John will present the preliminary results of the Human Use Management Review monitoring of wildlife corridor and habitat patches around Canmore. Between May 2015 and June 2017 , the Town of Canmore and Alberta Environment and Parks, Parks Division, embarked on a two-year collaborative study to better understand both wildlife and human use of the valley, particularly within wildlife corridors. The study stemmed from a series of recommendations developed through a comprehensive stakeholder process known as the Canmore Human Use Management Review (HUMR). The overall goal of our study is to determine how wildlife and humans use the greater Canmore/Bow Valley landscape so both provincial and municipal land managers can develop effective strategies to increase the sustainability of the area for wildlife.
